Orlando weather forecast: Friday to be a repeat of afternoon and evening storms

Tonight's low: 76 degrees | Tomorrow's high: 92 degrees | Rain: 80% chance of p.m. Storms


Main weather concerns: Afternoon threats include torrential rain that may cause some minor flooding when storms form between 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. This could lead to "ponding" on some roadways. Dangerous lightning will also be a common hazard. It won't rain for the entire afternoon, but there will be a chance for passing downpours and lightning storms all afternoon and evening.
